This film received one of its first, and rare early television broadcasts in San Francisco Monday 27 October 1958 on KGO-TV (Channel 7). Although occasional telecasts in less prominent markets did take place, there is no reliable documentation that it was ever televised in New York City, Los Angeles or Philadelphia at this time.

An over the top comedy, musical and disaster film!
"Madame Satan" is one of those movies that is not sure what it is but is having a grand time trying to figure it out. Part bedroom farce (where in pre code days couples sleep in the same bed), romantic comedy, musical and at its climax a disaster film. Its basic plot follows the misadventures of a married couple as they try to relight the spark in their marriage. The climax is a costume ball aboard a zeppelin (the musical production numbers here are pretty spectacular) that eventually ends in the zeppelin's crash in a storm. The effects are all done with miniatures and they really are quite impressive. The cast , especially Roland Young, are quite good though at times hesitant. You get the impression that in this early talkie the actors are not yet comfortable with sound but that is a minor quibble. All in all it is a fun over the top film that rarely has a dull moment.
